Reese Witherspoon respond to PETA’s request


Tell me what bag you are carrying and I’ll tell you who you are.

That is exactly how the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, better known as PETA, is crusading their advocacy against animal cruelty. And the group’s latest proselyte is none other than Ms. Reese Witherspoon, who had recently figured in a fatal accident and might be feeling lucky to have been given a second chance.

After receiving a “disturbing” video– apparently narrated by her Walk the Line costar Joaquin Phoenix–that showed the barbaric methods used in the exotic-skins handbag industry, the Legally Blonde actress has decided to retire her precious Chloe Paraty python handbag. The said python skin article, which costs around $3820 on the Net-a-porter UK site, is being tot around Hollywood by several celebrities, namely Katie Holmes.

PETA has expressed appreciation and satisfaction on the actress’ noble action. “We’ve long known Reese to be a kind person, so we’re pleased — and not surprised — that she is hanging up her python bag for good,” said a spokesperson for the group. “We hope Reese’s honest mistake will serve as a reminder for all of us to be extra-certain that what we’re buying is mock croc or fake snake,” added the rep. The group also sent her flowers to the 35-year-old star after vowing never to carry the purse again.
